Lawyer Philip Gault (Carleton G. Young), due to an unexplained accident, lost his voice and can only speak in an eerie whisper. Gault infiltrates "the syndicate" in his native Central City to bring down organized crime from within; to the underworld, he becomes known as the Whisperer. Later, his voice is restored through surgery, but he continues to lead a double life as the Whisperer, relaying instructions from the syndicate bosses in New York (who don't know he's a mole) to their lackeys in Central City, whom Gault is actually setting up.

the whisperer otr
I have been listening to otr since I was 8 years old and I'm only 35. I have always been a fan of the crime/mystery/thriller shows. The whisperer is definately a hidden gem like so many other radio shows that lasted only a season or two I.e: murder at midnight, dark fantasy or the haunting hour. Creepy voice and decent plots. This show was definitely overlooked back in the day. Highly recommended.

To bad NBC did not want to pick this show up after the summer of 1951. I found all 13 episodes quite intriguing.
